So....

I have taken a deposit on the 180 (http://forum.jdmstyletuning.com/showthread.php?34083-Big-fat-paulies-Big-fat-180-of-awesomeness.) and I decided that it was time for a fatty (cause we all love a fatty).

I picked up my R33 for next to nothing. Bit of work done to it. Nothing too major. I will just Ctrl + V the ad. Very rough paint. But otherwise i am more than happy with it.


Engine-

- 3inch turbo back exhuast
- K&N air filter
- yellow jacket coil packs
- nismo fuel pressure reg
- walbro 500hp intank fuel pump

Suspension-

- kings springs
- koni yellow shocks in the rear
- whiteline camber arms
- whiteline traction/toe arms
- all rear bushes replaced
- front and rear ball joints done
- adjustable front camber bushes
- front, rear and b pillar braces

Exterior-

- Respayed in matte white
- rear spoiler removed
- hot stuff jap wheels 17x8 and 17x9
- Factory eletronic sunroof

Interior-

- 2 seat rego
- kkr stearing wheel
- boost, oil pressure, water temp, fuel pressure guages
- fire extingisher
- striped interior

And here are some Pics.

Plan of attack is:

1: install a fixed back and harness i have.

2: Skid.

Then later do some other shit as i see fit. But a weld in cams approved half cage, and more boost seems like a good plan.... oh and tints. Was hot as fuck in the car today.

This thread is missing something, hmm....

http://run-it-hard.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Paulies-R33.jpg

For a while now a good friend of mine, Paulie has been lusting over Skylines. Not just any Skyline though, oh no he wanted the fattie. The kinda Skyline that is like the fat chick at a party that no one is really interested in.


But after a few beers, you realise “hey, I’d tap that”. You take the plunge you get talking and soon enough, you take this chicky to the bedroom. She than rides the fuck out of you like it’s the last cock she’ll ever have!

The R33 Skyline has this same effect.

A lot of people hate on how they look “big” weigh hundreds more than it’s siblings and so on. I think more people need to take a swim in the deep end, jump in one and take them for a good long, hard drive. You’ll be blown away of what they are capable of.

Paulie was well aware of this, and though I’m sure he’s had alot of “why the R33, get a 32 bro!” comments, he stuck to his guns and went with the fattie.

The smile on his face, when driving it says it all!

Put the fronts on

Went to put one of the rears on, and while rolling one of the tyres out i spotted this

She was flat. I must have run over it just before I took them off the 180. Will get it repaired and put them on the car one day this week.

So with nothing better to do i cleaned the car... Came out pretty good, better than expected with the dodgy paint job. Also removed about 10kg of dirt from the car. LOL. But in washing it i have found out my boot leaks... so i will chase that down

http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/9185/img1438rn.th.jpg (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/27/img1438rn.jpg/)

And put the dildo from the 180 on.

http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/8027/img1435e.th.jpg (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/72/img1435e.jpg/)

As the car is a 2 seater and has a stripped interior I thought it looked a little dull in the back.....

WELL NOT ANYMORE!

Ah, the perks of having not only the same car, but the same colour too. Benny and Paulie decided that they wanted each others boots. Paulie wanted to rock my old duck tail, while Benny wanted a boot with no holes.

I know it's hard to see. But it's 3in high flow muffler with a 4in droopy tip and all painted black.

Also got a return flow intercooler. It's the just jap/cooling pro stealth series. All black with all black pipes.

It's second hand but never used. So saved me few $$ over a new one.

Late last night, I got a SMS from Paulie, he was interested in the Trust rear spoiler I had for sale. But little did I know, he just picked up something quite cool for his R33.

He ended up coming past my house for a quick catch up sesh. I noticed a stack round objects in the back of his car.

Paulie told me he scored some Volks for cheap, but it didn’t click until I saw him unwrapping the black plastic surrounding them.

http://run-it-hard.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/front-specs.jpg

Tri-spokes! I should of known, Paulie loves the damn things. The PO had no idea what they were, he only knew they were 17′s.

So until we flipped these Volk C-Ultra wheels around, we were expecting some skinny, high offset wheels.

http://run-it-hard.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/rear-specs.jpg

Luckily the wheel spec stickers were still intact on 3 of the 4 wheels. I was quite suprised that these had decent sizes/offsets.

Paulie was also given some spacers and wheel nuts. We were un-aware that the C-Ultra used unique wheel nuts and spacers. So we were scratching our heads a little on why they weren’t fitting.

We ended up mounting one front wheel and one rear wheel to see how it all fits. I reckon they will look ace with a little more low.

So new coilovers and sway bars went in last week. Gotta say I am very impressed with the quality of the yellow speed coilovers. Great ride and not too crashy.

Also want to say a big thanks to the wholesale suspension crew. Great service and great price. Only issue is they are out in god damn penrith. But it was worth the trip.

Also I did I drift night tonight. Only on wet skid pan as I am broke till after my USA trip.

The coilovers did great, the car did great. The only issue of the night is the car is living up to its number plates and becoming a bit of a u-boat and leaking a tad bit of water.

Anyway will get pics up ASAP. Just haven't got them as of yet.

Not really about the car but it's car related.

Got this for cheap while I was in the USA.

It's a go pro hero 2. I got the motorsport pack. So should be sweet. I'll be testing out some angles over the weekend in preparation for matsuri.

Also need to drop a psi or 2 on the boost t. I'm hitting rich and retard on the ecu and turning my fuel in to black smoke.

Also have started to collect parts for the next upgrade.

Ecu acquired just need to pick it up of Don.
Defi din gauges, Oil cooler core and thermostat/filter relocater sitting on my livingroom floor.

Still required:
Turbo.
Injectors.

My goal is around 230 to 250kw at the wheels, a fat torque curve and quick response.
I am not too sure what turbo to get at this stage... All i know is it must bolt on to the stock manifold.
I was thinking highflow stock.... but I am flying a bit blind right now and also unsure where to look.
I am thinking i may stay away from second hand stuff. A mate just got fucked over by with a "mint condition" second hand turbo.
So i dont want that to happen to me.

Think i will do engine and gear box mounts while I am at it.

In regards to turbo you wanting somthing that bolts to stock manifold, why not have stock 25t turbo rebuilt and high flowed, pay the cost you will be the boss

Pay fuck all get fuck all

I've driven 33s with the rebuilt high flow 25t, a 25/40 (My old car) and 35/40.

By far the most memorable would go to 35/40 but that comes with alot of headaches and other upgrades.

between the 25/40 and the high flowed 25t - It was a close call - for some reason I liked the high flow 25t better - plus it's cheaper.

Also got Pulled over by the boys in blue for the steel wheels.
Guy was a cock head and started yelling at me telling me my car is a hunk of shit and other personal insults.
He changed his tone when I said I'd be asking for a copy of the video.
He said if I changed both the wheels he would let me go and not defect me, he was looking all smug thinking he had me. He was shocked when I pulled 2 wheels out of the boot.

Anyway. Changed the wheels on parramatta rd in peak hour. Caused a massive traffic jam.

Anyway. After all that. Waltzed in to ashfield police station and lodged a formal complaint. Turns out I know the duty Sargent through my job, he went out and got me a copy of the video before a "system error" got involved and the tape disappeared. May take it to Aca if not happy with the outcome.

Long story short. The wheels are legal as they are only 16x8... They are just a little on the neg offset side of things.

So long story short... I got some new rubber for my C-Ultras and decided after about 4 drift days it was time for a wheel alignment.

Anyway, the place i go to had been good to me in the past with previous cars.

Long story short their new wheel alignment guy decided to drive my car up on to the machine at quite a speed resulting in the exhaust catching on the hoist and in turn snapping some studs on the dump.

I didnt realise for a couple of hours (its not bad till it comes on boost), and by then they were closed. I return the on the monday and they deny all responsibility and refuse to fix the car.

So the car is back at my trusted mechanic getting it all fixed. Also getting my profec b 2 installed and set up.


So big props to Anth at Dahtone for working on the car. Not only is he well priced and a good bloke. He has an awesome GTR too.

Willis
18-09-12, 10:13 PM
I always watch mechanics extremely closely.. and if they refuse to allow me in the workshop to observe.. i walk out mate.
They often have trouble even getting my cars onto the hoist.

I'd take it further if i were you.. ask to speak to the manager show him your receipt for the repair. Explain that they new mechanic hit it as he drove onto the ramp. Get the manager to question the mechanic about the incident..

Sorry to hear anyways.

Did all that. From what i can see my only option is to go to small claims. And to be honest, its not worth the effort.

And speaking of the car, While it was off getting repaired Anth spotted that the shaft in the turbo was bent.... Guess my high flow is going in sooner than planned.

24-09-12, 01:06 AM
Just been for a drive and the car feels awesome.

Car used to be really snappy low, ok mid, and die about 5800 to 6000.
High flow turbo comes on a little later (600 rpm at most) and a lot smoother but just punches hard midrange and pulls harder than a 13 year old boy who just discovered redtube right to redline.

Also, i gave the s-drives a bit of a work out. And gotta say, they are so much better than any other non r compound tyre in the dry, sure they aren't super soft like neova's or ku36's. But when they start to let go you can feel it coming unlike those that just snap and you gotta play catch up.

Only had a quick drive in the wet and they are really good too but wasnt pushing.

Have been told they are noisy... but my car is stripped and no sound deadening... so wouldnt know.

Anyway, I will do a full write up with pics and stuff soon.

What started as a tyre review that ended in a forced turbo upgrade.

I was getting new tyres for my C-Ultra’s (3 spoke for the win) and figured after 4 drift days, it was time for a wheel alignment.

http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb449/bigfatpaulie13/IMG_0388_zps1caf63be.jpg

Anyway, long story short, they caught my cat on a hoist and snapped some studs where the dump pipe meets the turbo (one was so bent before it snapped it had to be drilled out) I didn’t see it happen and by the time I realised (made shocking noise when the wastegate opened, otherwise I wouldn’t have known) I was halfway through the Royal National Park. By the time I got back the shop were closed. I go back on the Monday and they deny it was their fault. Despite my best efforts they refused to pay to fix it.

http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb449/bigfatpaulie13/IMG_0382_zpsd809bfd3.jpg
http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb449/bigfatpaulie13/IMG_0383_zps388c4ee2.jpg

So off to Anth from Dahtone to make it all better. After taking the turbo off I got a call telling me the old turbo was stuffed. I already had a high flow that I was going to put in later… I just didn’t have the funds to do the injectors and ecu at the moment, after speaking to Anth he assured me I could run it at about 10 psi and it would be fine till I could do the rest.

Anyway I head out to Dahtone and check out the old turbo and drop off the new one. The shaft on the old one was looser than a cheap whore after the Navy had been in town. Not only was it loose, it was bent and chunks were missing from the exhaust wheel, and the inlet housing was full of oil.

http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb449/bigfatpaulie13/th_IMG_0381_zps21e42abd.jpg (http://s1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb449/bigfatpaulie13/?action=view&current=IMG_0381_zps21e42abd.mp4)

So we put the high flow in and chuck in my Profec B 2 to run the thing.
http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb449/bigfatpaulie13/IMG_0378_zps14e5d18f.jpg


As always the work from anth is top notch, neat and really well done.

http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb449/bigfatpaulie13/IMG_0380_zps1cbcf5d2.jpg


As for the results:
Car used to be really snappy low, ok mid, and die about 5800 to 6000.
High flow turbo comes on a little later (600 rpm at most) and a lot smoother but just punches hard midrange and pulls harder than a 13 year old boy who just discovered redtube, right to redline.

I finally got the chance to give the s-drives a bit of a work out. And gotta say, they are so much better than any other non r compound rubber in the dry, sure they aren't super soft and offer grip like neova's or ku36's. But when they start to let go you can feel it coming unlike the above mentioned that just snap and you end up playing catch up.

Only had a quick drive in the wet and they are really good too but wasn’t pushing.

Have been told they are noisy... but my car is stripped and no sound deadening... so wouldnt know.

TL;DR:
Dahtone racing = Awesome.

Mine is Hypergear.

From what i found they seem to be the best option. They are a sponsor of skylines australia and from what i have read, any issues that they have had have been dealt with quick.

FYI; If you get the "swap" They are a little slow, took about 2 weeks for me. But i sent off my spare. So didn't care.

And DBA slotted at the rear (and FYI r32/3/4 and z32 owners these are on sale at super cheap at the moment).

(excuse my spacer).

Bendix ultimate pads went in with all of that.

I gotta say it is a massive improvement on what was in there. very progressive, massive bite and after a few hard stops my head was hurting a little.

While I was at it I also put in the alloy rad.
After a hard thrash i could only get the car up to 88deg. Pulled up and left the car running. After 2 mins it was back to 70 degrees. Very happy with it.

Drift day tomorrow at south circuit sydney motor sport park. See how i go.

big fat paulie
13-04-13, 05:54 PM
So South Circuit is so much fun. Just wish i had about 30 or 40 more kw so i could hold third without clutch kicking and really bake the tyres.

Cage has stiffened the car up so much. Made the car really snappy. Which i kind of like but think i will dial the rear dampers back a little.

And here are a few pics from the day.

Cage looks great. Was it easy to install? Im getting the same, but prob one diagonal instead of 2.

big fat paulie
10-06-13, 09:08 PM
The AGI guys installed as it was the first sunroof 33 cage they built. But its a matter of lining it up and drilling holes.

In hindsight I regret the X as I can only just get 16's through the X.
It wasn't concerned at the time as i was supposed to be getting an Amarok, but that fell through.
But for a 180 i would go double diagonal as you have the hatch to get wheels in.

saad
10-06-13, 09:23 PM
wonder if double x adds much rigidity?

big fat paulie
10-06-13, 09:29 PM
I have been told it does. I think it would make a bigger difference on the 180's than the 33.

So the car spent the day out at unigroup yesterday. Had some issues with the ecu that are yet to be resolved. So it will be going back soon.

But in saying that I am happy with the result so far.
At 4 psi less than planned and 1500rpm before redline the boat managed 225 rwkw.

But with the issues present we decided to richen up the car and drop the boost more. So it's running at 180 kw for now.

So car was still playing up. Turns out a 90deg silicone joiner at the front of the turbo was sucking shut.

Got anth to fab me up a new one so it only has short straight joiner.

Now seeming I had a short metal intake, i thought it would be about the right time to block off my BOV and flutter like a VL.
That solved all my issues.

Car pulls harder than a 15 year old with a playboy.


So i did what any right minded person would do and took it to skids last thursday.
But cause my car isn't pretty no one took any pics of it.

Took the car to skids today.
Playing silly buggers at partial throttle and what not.

So just mashed full throttle everywhere and it seemed to help.

Started the day on some 16's. Hated the sidewall flex. Car felt sloppy as fuck.

Changed to some 17's with some smaller sidewall. Felt good. Smashed throttle more. Made skids. Won at life.

Impul silhouette. 16x7 something weak sized. +30?

I have been looking for a set in 17 or 18 x 9.
I passed up on a brand new set of 18x10 +20 about 8 months ago and have been regretting it since.

I also nearly bought the set that import monster had of late.
But got out bid at the last second. They made over. $1k profit on those too.
